Jinger Duggar just married her first boyfriend, Jeremy Vuolo, during Season 2 of "Counting On." They went to Australia for their honeymoon, and life within the expansive patriarchy settled again. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's other daughter, Jessa Seewald, became pregnant for the second time. Her firstborn, Spurgeon, will meet his baby brother or sister in early 2017. His aunt and uncle, Jill and Derick Dillard, were missionaries serving in Central America. However, the families reunited for the Yuletide festivities. As the Duggar's celebrated their faith, Joy-Anna Duggar entered into an official courtship with friend Austin Forsyth.

Wedding in the works?

The Season 3 promo of "Counting On" showed a nervous Forsyth and Duggar. They were filmed in Arkansas, and the program will document their journey as a couple. Fans wondered if the twosome will marry on-screen. A Blasting News article shared a similar sentiment. It read, "Are Joy-Anna Duggar and beau Austin Forsythe "Counting On" a fast track to the altar like the Vuolos? Can they top the landspeed courtship-to-wedding record set by the November newlyweds?" While a date has not been set, people might as well clear their calendars. Right now, next year could mean more than just births and babies for the famous brood.

Pregnancies galore

The Duggar's believe in procreation and discourage the use of contraceptives. While the Vuolo's never gave intimate details about their plans, the Seewald's and Dillard's were adamant about raising a large clan. Seewald told the magazine People: "Looking back, it was well worth it and we will have more kids, but in the moment, I really believed that we are only adopting from here on out." Her brutal labor in 2015 resulted in hospitalization. She lost so much blood, and viewers were concerned for her health and well-being.

As Seewald suffered a traumatic event, Dillard's experience was safer and more sterile. She underwent a cesarean section, and her dream to nurture many offspring wasn't deterred. Duggar and Forsyth won't worry about these issues now; they're too focused on the baby steps of their romance.
